As the quartet began to explore the abandoned theme park, they would find themselves in a somewhat sweltering part of the network, lava and heated vents blowing hot air into the surrounding area as far as the eye could see, not that it mattered much. Grass, albeit wilted, still was prevalent in the area with very scant pieces of normal paneling. Before long, however, the group was forced to stop as an OldHeater seemed to menace them out in the open, whist soft grass and soil was spread beneath their feet, a pair of machines in the distance seemingly adding to the heat of the area they found themselves in; Lava spewing into the air every so often as grates of heated air continued to slowly force their way along the terrain, overwriting the surrounding non-hot terrain...if they didn't know any better, they would have sworn they were in Netfrica through a twist of fate.
But before the navis could even begin to think of leaving the immediate area, a quartet of viruses quickly made themselves apparent. A Spikey2 immediately running towards Sparky, a heated growl coming from the wolf-like virus as it sniffed the SP from a distance. A Blazer quickly blasting out from the outer edges of their newly made battlefield, spinning around like some hotshot dragster, belching flame across the field as it flanked Lyntael to some degree. A Hothead quickly dropping from the sky atop the lava spewing machine of indeterminate origin, staring MENACINGLY at the quartet. And finally, a Champu coming in as it sat atop the heated grates, near the heater belching out more of those annoying grates...though behind the heater itself, a glimmering cashe would be seen, if barely, when the navis took notice of the boxing virus. The OldHeater belching ever more flames out of it's rickety body, battle routines locked in and the quartet would be forced into a battle.
-- Viruses --
Spikey viruses are a little faster than the average virus, allowing them to cover more ground than normal with movements and dodges. They may attack while moving, but as normal, they cannot attack while dodging without expending a second action to do so. Spikey viruses are also able to use something called 'pack tactics' when 3 or more of them are present. Simply put, the Spikey viruses attack and dodge as a wolf pack. In addition, they are treated as having a reduced power Haste and Accuracy Enhancement effect which grants them a +5% bonus to evasion and accuracy while this effect is active. The effect is passive, and only expires when their numbers drop below 3.

Blazers are a modified strain of Fishy virus made to fully exploit their previous possession of Burner battlechip data. While they retain, for the most part, the appearance of a Fishy virus, their fins are more heavily rounded and there are a set of specialized gills on either side of their underbelly that can spew flames. In addition, all Blazers are now a stark reddish color, with the intensity varying from a charcoal-ish gray-red at the first tier to a violent intensity with the Omegas.
